Where to Stay in Lanzarote: A Guide to the “Island of Volcanoes”

Lanzarote is the easternmost of the islands of the Canary archipelago. This island is part of the province of Las Palmas and is located about 100 km off the coast of Africa. Lanzarote is one of the most visited islands in the Canaries and is famous for its volcanic formations, whitewashed houses and sandy beaches. In this post, we will explore the best areas to stay in Lanzarote, Spain.


Why you should visit Lanzarote

The island of Lanzarote is one of the most comprehensive destinations in the Canary Islands. Although it is mainly known for its beaches, Lanzarote also offers spectacular national parks, volcanic caves, natural pools and traditional villages. Its acclaimed award-winning wines and cheeses also make this island an up-and-coming gastronomic destination. The best part? Thanks to its size and popularity, Lanzarote has an excellent tourist infrastructure. See accommodation in Lanzarote.

But, let us start at the beginning; the main tourist attraction of Lanzarote are its beaches. This volcanic island has beaches for all tastes. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Lanzarote include Playas de Papagayo, Playa de Famara, Playa del Risco, Playa Grande, Playa de Guacimeta and the natural pools of Los Charcones. See accommodation near the beach on the island of Lanzarote.

As is to be expected, most of the accommodation available in Lanzarote is found in the tourist developments on the coast. Enclaves like Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise or Puerto del Carmen offer some of the best-rated resorts in the Canary Islands.

But Lanzarote is much more than beach and sand. This fantastic island is also an excellent nature destination. Lanzarote is home to natural wonders such as the Timanfaya National Park. Known for its arid and mountainous terrain and its desert ecosystems and covering an area of 50 km2, this protected volcanic field occupies a good portion of the island’s west and is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. See accommodation near Timanfaya Natural Park.

43% of Lanzarote’s surface is under protection. In addition to Timanfaya Park, other natural attractions in Lanzarote include the Volcanoes Natural Park, the Teneguime ravine, La Corona and Los Ajaches natural monuments and the Los Islotes Natural Reserve. Lanzarote is also the gateway to visit the Island of La Graciosa.

From a cultural perspective, the island’s inland villages offer typical Canarian architecture, cultural attractions, vineyards and wineries. The island capital, Arrecife, is one of the oldest settlements and offers historical and cultural attractions such as the Puente de las Bolas, Castillo de San Gabriel, the Insular Centre of Culture, the church of San Ginés, the municipal market and Calle Real. See accommodation in Arrecife.


When to visit Lanzarote

Despite being only 100 km from the Sahara coasts and having a desert terrain, the influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the sea currents mean that Lanzarote has pleasant temperatures and sunny days throughout the year. If you visit Lanzarote during the summer, you can expect average temperatures to hover between 25 and 29 ºC. On the other hand, winters are exceptionally warm, with average temperatures between 14 and 21 ºC.

Due to its pleasant temperatures regardless of the season, Lanzarote, like all the Canary Islands, is a perfect tourist destination all year round. However, to avoid crowds and save some money, the best time to travel to Lanzarote is during spring (from April to early June) and autumn (from October to early December). There are almost no tourists on the islands during these seasons, hotels are cheaper, and temperatures are suitable for outdoor activities and going to the beach.

The Canary Islands have two high seasons throughout the year; one during the summer (from the end of June to August), which is the holiday period in Spain and many European countries, and one in the winter, when many tourists from Europe travel to the archipelago escaping from the cold back home.


Getting there and around

The only airport in Lanzarote is the Aeropuerto de Lanzarote (ACE). Located in San Bartolomé, 6 kilometres from the capital (Arrecife), this important Canarian airport offers direct connections to dozens of destinations in the archipelago (Gran Canaria, Tenerife North and La Palma), mainland Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia and Seville) and continental Europe (especially to airports in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Scandinavia). Four bus lines connect Lanzarote airport with the rest of the island. Bus lines 22 and 23 connect you to Arrecife and lines 161 and 261 to Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen.

Like the rest of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote is well-connected by ferry. Its capital, Arrecife, has ferry connections with the peninsula (Cádiz) and the Canarian ports of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura) and Santa Cruz de La Palma. Additionally, the town of Playa Blanca offers connections to Corralejo (Fuerteventura), and Órzola offers the only ferry route to La Graciosa. See ferry routes, schedules and fares in the Canary Islands.

Although Lanzarote has taxis and an extensive network of buses (locally known as guaguas) connecting the main towns on the island, the best way to move around Lanzarote and get there to all its towns, natural parks, and beaches is by car. You can rent a cheap car in Lanzarote here. Another excellent option to get around the island is hiring tours and activities that include transportation.


Where to stay in Lanzarote

The best area to stay in Lanzarote is Playa Blanca. This tourist resort in the south of Lanzarote offers some of the best beaches on the island, surf and windsurf spots and is close to the Timanfaya National Park and the beautiful Playas del Papagayo.
